American Restaurant

“Perched on the 51st floor of the Manulife Centre on Bloor St, this bar offers one of the best views of Toronto (because you can't see the CN Tower from the CN Tower). Said to be the highest patio in all of Canada, the Panorama serves up a 180-degree view of the city.”

Italian Restaurant
$$$$
“Authentic Italian restaurant, Drake even rapped about it! Our go to spot if you're craving risottos and seafood. Price is $$$$.”

Steakhouse
$$$$
“STK is a steakhouse befitting the Yorkville neighbourhood. With its imposing metal sign, doormen, and posh second floor dining room, it fits right in. The global franchise, with locations in places like Las Vegas, Milan, London and Ibiza, keeps elements of all locations consistent, but allows local chefs to play with the menu. I'm inclined to call it "Steak" out loud as this place is primarily a steakhouse, but it's pronounced S-T-K, following the recent trend of everyone being too cool for vowels.”

Boulud, the French chef and restaurateur, owns restaurants in France, New York, Vegas Montreal and Toronto - and what better neighbourhood to house his Toronto locale than Yorkville. In the Four Seasons Hotel, dbar is a chic lounge that offers elegant cocktails and serves both a French and American cuisine.”

French Restaurant

“Fancy, French, Brunch, need I say more? Right on the Bloor Subway Line, book a table for brunch, get the pain au chocolat and thank me later. Thursday 4-8 come for $1 oysters and "cheap" champagne. Get off at Bay station, cross Bloor and head up the big stone steps. ”
